I've worked in glass since 1976.   I've made stained glass windows and lamps for residences, taught stained glass classes, and developed patterns for my projects.  In 1998, my first book, Birds Stained Glass Pattern Book, was published by Dover Publications, which led to  more pattern books, each with a distinctive style of patterns, Victorian, Art Nouveau, Native American and many more.   You can click on the Books link to see them.  Glass has given me a lot of enjoyment.  I love the play of light, the brilliance of the colors, and the various textures of glass.  Crafting beautiful things with my hands is something I've done since childhood.
My rich spiritual life and yoga practice have also been a source of much of the joy I feel in my life.  I balance my life by helping others through the arts of astrology and yoga and by creating beautiful things with my hands.
